Message from NEU:
Musicians’ Union Teachers’ CPD Weekend, 27 – 28 October 2018
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London
This biennial event gives musicians who teach the opportunity to meet other music education specialists, teachers and practitioners to share skills and practice. Debates, workshops and valuable 1-1 surgeries complete the itinerary, along with music-making and networking with colleagues working in music education from across the UK. Recipient of the 2017 Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award, Nitin Sawhney will be presenting the keynote address. For full details of the event and to apply for tickets go here:
The MU, with whom we have a partnership and joint membership arrangement, is researching the challenges relating to access to music education, workforce fragmentation and contradictory government policy. There are four surveys, aimed at:
Teachers with a responsibility for music who work in schools.
Instrumental music teachers who work in music services, hubs or as independent teachers.
Managers of music services, music education hubs or other organisations that deliver music education to young people.
Head teachers of primary, secondary or special schools.
We encourage you to complete the surveys that are relevant to you here.
The confidential information collected will form the basis of a report and future advocacy.
Message from, Andrew Baisley, School Cuts Campaign, NUT:
In four short weeks, MPs will return to Westminster.
If we’re going to reverse school cuts, this autumn will be crucial – and we need to be ready.
The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, will be presenting his budget to Parliament in November.
We’ll need to work together to drum up more pressure than ever before, urging him to agree extra education funding before that budget is put forth.
Get ready for an autumn of campaigning by attending one of our free activist trainings this September:
